Traditional Catholic Prayers: Come out from amongst them and be ye separate saith the Lord Almighty
Be ye faithful and prepared to meet the Lord
2 CORINTHIANS 6
He exhorts them to a correspondence with God's grace, and not to associate with unbelievers.
14 Bear not the yoke together with unbelievers. For what participation hath justice with injustice? Or what fellowship hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with the unbeliever?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? *For you are the temple of the living God: as God saith: **I will dwell in them, and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 *Wherefore, go out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing:
18 And I will receive you: *and I will be a Father to you: and you shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Ver. 14. Bear not the yoke together with unbelievers. He does not mean, that they must wholly avoid their company, which could not be done, but not to have too intimate a friendship with them, not to marry with them, to avoid their vices. Be ye separate . . . touch not the unclean thing. He does not speak of meats, clean and unclean, according to the law of Moses, nor of legal uncleannesses, but what is sinful under the new law of Christ, and would defile the soul, as idolatry, fornication, &c. Wi.
Ver. 15. Such as have cast off the yoke of God are called children of Belial. John viii. 44. Belial, in its radical signification, means without yoke. V.
Ver. 16. The apostle here blames the too great affection the Corinthians had for the Gentiles, who sometimes invited them to their religious feasts, at which were eaten meats which had been offered to idols, and which gave scandal both to the Christians and Gentiles. To draw them from these feasts he tells them, that they are the temples of the Holy Spirit, and that consequently they ought not to make themselves the temples of devils, by eating of the sacrifices of devils. Calmet. — S. Paul, in this and the foregoing verses, clearly shews that the faithful ought not to frequent, on any account, the tabernacles of those who have left the Church, i.e. the true faith such as those calling themselves the Novus Ordo or in other words, the New Order or New Sect - the New Church, for there is NO such thing; the Vatican II apostasy and all the antipopes thereof and their minions - John xxiii, Paul vi, John Paul i, John Paul ii, Benedict xvi and any other to come after them, we may have NOTHING to do with on pain of penalty of eternal damnation by the Just and True and Righteous and HOLY GOD. In the old law, Moses was ordered to command the ancients of Israel, on the part of God, to depart from the tents of those wicked men, lest they be involved in their sins. Numb. xvi. 27.
